This is a great place to visit, but don't limit yourself to this spot only. The zeros here are great to see, but you really need to go to the old runway which is very close so that you can imagine what it was like during WW II. I also recommend that you walk up the tails and/or road to the mountain behind Colonia so that you can see more artifacts and bunkers. You also get a great view up there.

There were a number of World War II sights that included a F4F Hellcat fighter aircraft and Japanese anti-aircraft guns in Colonia, and a Japanese Nakajima B5N Torpedo Bomber near the old airport in Rull...lot of them have good explanations about the aircraft and the history. Like open air exhibits scattered across the island.

The tour included several WWII relics. We saw fighters and bombers from both Japan and U.S.. Was a good reminder of the sacrifice others have made in the past so that we can enjoy the freedoms we have today.

We stopped at some of these sites as part of a larger tour. I know the site here is listed as Japanese Zeros but we saw more than only Japanese Zeros as we were taken to other downed planes and artillery as well. I'm only moderately interested in WWII history but did appreciate seeing some of the equipment first hand, instead of just reading about it in books. Also nice seeing it relatively undisturbed or refurbished - seems more real than historical items that have been restored or moved to museums. For being such a small island, I was impressed with some of the memorials and descriptive signs available at some (not all) of the locations. Definitely worth the time if you've not had the opportunity for any similar experiences on any other South Pacific islands.
